Half Moon + French Cut Out

Half Moon French Cut Out Nails www.chelseaqueen.com

One of my major goals for my personal nail art is to always try and reinvent the basics. I think the french + half moon has become a classic, but at times you just see it everywhere! It definitely is a favorite of mine but I really try to be original and think outside the box. I think for these, adding in the simple cut out near the base revamps this classic!

I began this design with a base coat, and using the polish brush I painted half my nail with Azature Lapis DiamondI tried to make the line as straight as I could, but I also used a clean up brush to fix any mistakes. You can also use a nail art brush to draw the straight line and then fill in the rest.

While I let that dry pretty well, I added in the half moon with Azature Jade DiamondFor this I used a nail art brush!

For the final touch, I painted on a french tip with Azature Faint White Diamond. If I made any mistakes, I went back in with Lapis Diamond to smooth it out! 🙂 Add your top coat and you’re finished.

In what ways have you reinvented some nail art classics?
